Hahahaha ok... Bendo wasn't the most hated champ, where the hell did you get that from? He was well liked by many, but some didn't find his fighting style that exciting plus he was involved in too many close decisions for people to really recognize him as The champ.
I've always liked him but towards the end, which has been ongoing in the LW division, there were far too many rematches and close decision wins.
And why would any think that he would get cut after one loss? That is possibly one of the stupidest things I've read this year
